Tuning: DADGBE
Capo: 1st fret to play with the recording

Hereís a rendition that boils down a lot of what is going on to a playable
version for one guitar. Please let me know how it sounds and Iíll make
changes as needed to help this be the best it can. I love the way Counting
Crows does this version of a great Joni Mitchell tune! It plays around a lot
with different inversions and shapes of the same chord, which I think adds a
lot to their version.

All chords and fret numbers are given in relation to the capo incase you
want to play without. The actual key of the song is Ab.
